    Philip Ward, A Lifetime’s Reading: The World’s 500 Greatest Books (New York: Stein and Day, 1983). Oddly, the title text has rejected Caxton’s usual apostrophe in favor of something resembling a diacritical mark. Subtitle in Palatino Bold, inside a square black panel centered against a carpet of author names in Avant Garde, with interior text set in Times New Roman.
